Anand has been our sincere supporter, be it in terms of funds or in terms of his sincere attempts to help others in every way possible. He is a Animal Lover and without doubt a People Lover too. His help has made Jnana Jyothi Tamil Kannada Primary School repairs possible. And now the community Reading Room in Pillaganahalli and more.
Rekha's help has helped us in our very early stages and has helped serve little ones in Jeedimara Slum. Her interest in our Reading Room projects has helped us in Jeedimara Slum (Ongoing) and Pillaganahalli and more. She is a active contributor of the community with the only restriction being the distance she has been placed in, which has separated her from these under priviledged communities. An active contributor, we really appreciate her family's continued support.
A wonderful designer, he has donated to us our beautiful logo. He has given us all our design related advice in the past and now. We are extremely happy to have him among us, especially at at a time when we have started with no funds at all. He has conveyed every object we put on our paper, magically in his design. Our sincere thanks to him on that..
An extraordinary social worker herself. She has given us what we are in dire need of - Her presence and her time. She is our active companion when it comes to Story Telling Sessions we do to keep the community bonding alive and to convey to children their rights and their grievance mechanisms. She has been a committed tutor for our NIOS (Open School) youth (domestic worker) and a self-less contributor to the society. Hats off to her and we are sure she will do a lot more.
We can never forget Manjunath for the timely help he has extended in the past when the Austin Town Tamil Primary School came to us seeking help with funds towards ferrying Tamil children to their school until permanent arrangements were made. This was long long before we registered and we are very thankful for such timely help.
Can there be a better donation than donating a book? Gopi has contributed through donating books to youth in distress in an attempt to develop skills and train themselves. Such an attempt is worth applauding than anything else.
Melvin's contribution towards sponsoring the higher education of our domestic worker's children is not common. Cheers to his compassion and commitment towards educating another underprivileged in the society. It is because of people like him, that we still have some hope left.
Jawahar's contribution towards sponsoring the higher education of our domestic worker's children is not common.

Not only in matters of education, in matters of injustice too, they give us a hand and their time in raising our voices for the oppressed community.
Vimal's contribution has helped us by sponsoring the higher education of our domestic worker's children and in Transport backup for the Austin Town Tamil Primary School in the past. He is a techie and helps us with the technical stuff, web related stuff during his free time. We are happy to have such volunteer technical team amidst us.
Ishwarya's contribution towards sponsoring the higher education of our children is not common. Cheers to her compassion and commitment towards educating another underprivileged in the society. Not only in matters of education, in matters of injustice too, she has been a friend giving us a hand and her time in raising our voices for the oppressed community.
Hatim, Ranee, Deena, Preethi, Pavithra and Vidya are helping us in big ways with the funds from their apartment's old newspapers. How old newspapers could change a school is worth mentioning. They have steadily come out to help their neighbouring communities. And without their help this neighbourhood approach of Payanmaram would not have existed.
